OhioLINK Pickup Anywhere feature is now available. In the past, users were only able to pick up a requested item at one of their own campus locations. Now this new option in the central OhioLINK catalog will allow faculty, student and staff to pick up a requested item at locations associated with other OhioLINK participating institutions. For example, if you requested an OSU item, you can now pick it up at DenisonUniversity if it is closer to you. However this feature currently does not apply to OPAL own items.
